Airflow optimized

With high-powered components, excellent cooling is a must to ensure your hardware is running as efficiently as possible. Whether you opt for an air or liquid cooling solution, the ROG Strix G16CH delivers cool and quiet operation during even the most intense gaming sessions.

Liquid cooling

The ROG Strix G16CH also has a liquid cooling variant, harnessing the thermal conductivity to remove waste heat from the CPU incredible efficiently. Water cooling solutions can run their fans more slowly for the same amount of cooling as a traditional air cooler, keeping your machine quieter without sacrificing any performance.

Air cooling

Air cooling might not be the flashiest way to cool a CPU, but it certainly is the most reliable. With different air coolers for 65W and 105W TDP processors, the ROG Strix G16CH channels air from underneath and through the mesh front panel to keep your machine running at peak performance at all times.

Light 'em up

Light up your life with Aura Sync. ROG’s RGB control software, Aura Sync allows you to tweak the front panel, interior, and peripheral lighting on your machine. Keep your mouse, keyboard, monitor, and headphones all in perfect harmony with Armoury Crate.

Dolby Atmos

With Dolby Atmos, artists and studios can effectively position each voice, instrument or sound in 3D space. This unlocks new details in music or soundtracks, and delivers them with unparalleled clarity and depth — putting you in the center of a whole new world of audio. With virtual surround sound, your headset becomes a tool to place sound spatially, giving you more awareness and immersion than ever in game.

Cut the chatter

Two Way AI Noise Cancelation processes both incoming and outgoing audio to filter any errant background noises, making sure that your calls, chats and streams come through without distraction. Machine learning algorithms detect and suppress up to 95% of ambient noises, keeping comms clean at all times.
